  • 2 tortillasSmall wheat, flour or corn tortillas
  • 4oz Flat Iron Steak
  • 2large eggs
  • 1 avocadocut in half and thinly sliced
  • 1 green onionchopped
  • 2 bacon slices
  • 1/4cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4tbsp refried beans
  • freshly chopped cilantro
  • 1/2tsp Salt
  • 1/4tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2tbsp EVOO Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  1. Remove steak from refrigerator about 30 minutes before cooking. Use this time to prepare the avocado, green onion, and cilantro. Salt and pepper the steak on both sides.
  2. Heat a skillet to medium with a small amount of olive oil. Place tortillas on the skillet and cook for about 1-2 minutes until it starts to puff up and brown on the bottom; flip and cook on the other side for another 1-2 minutes. Move tortillas to a plate.
  3. Add bacon slices to the pan and cook thoroughly. Move to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain. Cut each slice into 2-4 strips.
  4. Add a tablespoon of oil to the pan and wait for about 3 minutes for it to heat. Place steak in the skillet, cooking for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Remove when it reaches 125 degrees for medium rare and set on a cutting board. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  5. Cook the eggs to your liking. Over-easy and poached eggs work well with this recipe, but scrambled, over-hard, or basted will work too. Sprinkle egg with salt and pepper.
  6. Slice the steak into thin strips.
  7. To prepare each tostada: Spread refried beans on a tortilla. Sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese. Top with bacon slices, avocado slices, steak, and egg. Sprinkle with cilantro and green onions.
Recipe Notes

This recipe is easy to prepare ahead of time for a quick morning meal, too. Cook steak and bacon and chop the green onions and cilantro; store in the fridge for up to three days. On the mornings you want a tostada, slice some fresh avocado, cook the eggs and tortillas, and reheat the meats.
